A-Rod: I want to win a World Series

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Feb 20, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Really Long Meeting is underway. The Yankees won’t get on the field until 11.

Talked to two Yankees beforehand: Robinson Cano and Alex Rodriguez. Cano said that he will miss Larry Bowa. It was Bowa who helped make Cano, working with him on defense and staying on him not to get lazy.

“I spoke to him two weeks ago and asked me how much I weighed,” Cano said, laughing.

Girardi is going to keep a close eye on Cano, as will Kevin Long. Bow’s not the first coach to bust chops on a young player.

A-Rod did a session with the television guys then the print and radio people. It was too short because he actually gave good answers. A short recap: He’s not talking to Scott Boras, who is still his agent. He has never used PEDs. He wants to win a World Series. He wants to finish his career as a Yankee. John Rocker was lying about that meeting with doctors in Texas.

Back in a bit with the A-Rod audio.

    Note to A-Rod:

    Dearest A-Rod,

    All of the New York fans would like to see you win a World Series as well. Preferably this year and a few years thereafter.

    Sincerely,

    Ray

    raymagnetic,

    Thanks for reminding A- Rod we’d all like that.

    I’m feelin giddy right now for a middle aged geezer. I just managed to get 2 tix to the last home game of the year. It will be a sad day,but I’ve spent so many hours in the Stadium that I’m happy to get a chance to say goodbye.

    The more I see ARod, the more I like him. Because he is NOT a prototypical masher, he strikes out a fair amount and he doesn’t have a great batting eye, I always thought he was overrated. But while he is far from the most dangerous hitter around, he is indeed, a great all around ballplayer.

    Last year I paid special attention to his baserunning, which was just outstanding. His ability to read to ball off the bat and get great jumps off a base is outstanding. His judgement on the basepaths is really great.

    And now we are getting to see how he takes care of his body. Because of this, he should be productive for much of his contract. If he doesn’t get injured, we will see all kinds of records fall. I hope the fans can appreciate him while he is still in his prime years. He is a monument waiting to happen.

    Drive – you got tickets to Game 4 of the World Series? (J/K)

  5. Steve February 20th, 2008 at 10:40 am

    He wants to win a World Series? What a shocker… what player doesn’t? :rolleyes:

  6. Spidur February 20th, 2008 at 11:41 am

    Pete, your title for this entry has got to rank up there on the Understatement of the Century list. :D

    Doesn’t surprise me in the least that he’s still not talking to Boras. What I don’t understand is why he keeps Boras on as his agent.

  7. Yazman February 20th, 2008 at 11:54 am

    OYF, I always enjoy your analysis, and I agree on ARod. One exception/question: if he is far from the most dangerous hitter around, who is more dangerous?

  8. YankeesLuv February 20th, 2008 at 5:03 pm

    welcome back Arod. Seems each year Arod seems more comfortable, good to see.

  9. Super Bowl February 20th, 2008 at 10:12 pm

    I’m so glas Arod’s a yankee. Too ad he can’t fire Boras.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    Just as attractive as the castle, however, is the village of Portmeirion itself. As with any sales situation, you should attempt and build a rapport along with your seller. I also loved the scalloped edges about the pieces because that usually dress them up somewhat to make them unique as opposed to the the simpl . This implies that if you serve a simply cooked food in a professional manner, you can win the heart of your guests. But at the same time if you are careless about the table arrangement and garnishing of your most passionately cooked recipe, it will fails to win the appreciations it requires.

    The idea was strange to me. It sounded too simple. Somehow, I had always operated on the premise that, if you wanted something in this world, you had to go out and get it for yourself. Yet, sincerity and hard work had yielded only meager returns, and I was willing to try anything. Experimentally, self consciously, I cultivated the daily practice of prayer. I said: God, show me the purpose for which You sent me to this world. Help me to be of use to myself and to humanity.

    Au début, j’étais excité à l’idée que ce travail pourrait me permettre de rencontrer des gens amusants d’autres collèges, élargir mon spectre social. Les teenyboppers, cependant, ne peuvent pas aller exactement sur les soirs d’école. À son tour, je vais finir par sortir avec mes managers, qui sont en général seulement un an ou deux de plus que moi. Pourtant, faire des plans avec les gestionnaires se révèle souvent problématique ainsi. Certains d’entre eux vivent loin de Towson, et face à une longue route après le magasin est fermé. D’autres préfèrent ne pas passer une nuit si elles sont prévues pour ouvrir le magasin le lendemain matin. En outre, la tactique de Abercrombie tourner les gestionnaires d’un magasin à fait qu’il est difficile d’établir des relations durables ou significatives avec eux de toute façon.

    As with any form of treatment, you have to prepare yourself. A healthy diet and plenty of exercise will maximize the results from your body wrap. Exfoliate your skin just prior to performing the body wrap treatment. This opens the pores and allows the ingredients to permeate your skin. You may want to use a pre wrap lotion as well.

Or, de plus en plus de plaisanciers pratiquent l’oursinade sauvage dans les criques pendant l’??t??, qui est pr??cis??ment la p??riode de reproduction de l’animal.” Les professionnels de la p??che sont inquiets: la vedette des plateaux de fruits de mer commence ?? d??serter les calanques de la C?te d’Azur.

I present the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly you’ll find questions like the one you bring up where by far the most imperative thing will likely be working in honest great faith. I don?t know if greatest practices have emerged about items like that, but I’m positive that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls really feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
